Yuri!!! on Ice GPF timeline thoughts/questions/feelings

Working on some fic set closely in the GPF and the timeline seems a little unclear. As I understand it, unlike the events leading up to it, the final usually has a full day off for the men between the short and free programs. For example, the schedule from 2016 [PDF]. But is that necessarily always the case?

From the anime, this is how I understand the timeline:

timeline )

Have I missed anything? Is this your understanding too? Would you find it jarring for fic to assume the short and free programs happen on consecutive days instead?

Chocolate Box: The Revealening

I wrote four stories in two fandoms; my main assignment, a pinch hit, and two treats. That's the most I've ever done for an exchange!

Foundation
Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov, Yuri!!! on Ice, 2200 words, Explicit
Developing Relationship, Semi-Public Sex, Non-Penetrative Sex, Intercrural Sex
Victor does Yuuri's makeup before competitions.

My main assignment and a look at Yuuri and Victor through a narrow lens. My favourite thing about this story was Yuuri getting progressively bolder. ♥


After-Party
Otabek Altin/Yuri Plisetsky, Yuri!!! on Ice, 2700 words, Teen And Up Audiences
Developing Relationship, First Kiss, Kissing, Cranky Yurio
After the Grand Prix Final Banquet, there is an after-party. But no one will let Yuri in.

The pinch-hit, some sweet OtaYuri. There's only a glimpse but my favourite thing in this story was Phichit with glitter on his face. He would rock that look.


Oh My God, Finally
Phichit Chulanont/Christophe Giacometti, Yuri!!! on Ice, 1700 words, Explicit
Established Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov, Humor, Drunk Sex, Hand Jobs, Blow Jobs
At the GPF post-banquet after-party, Chris and Phichit do a little roleplay to mock Victor and Yuuri and end up suprising themselves.

My first proper humour story in YOI; I don't know why it took me so long. Two after-party stories in the same exchange and both in Chris's room -- but it's such a fun set-up. My favourite thing has to be Phichit pretending to be Yuuri. He's very good at it.


Heart, Candy, Kiss
Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei, Haikyuu!!, 1000 words, Teen And Up Audiences
Established Relationship, Teasing, Humor, Let's face it they're both assholes
Tsukki's texts to Kuroo become suspiciously frequent and romantic.

Oh, Haikyuu!! I don't know why I haven't written a million stories for you. This was so fun to work on, these two have such a snarky relationship. My favourite thing was, of course, Bokuto. In fact, I kind of want to go back and edit Bokuto into both the YOI party stories because he would make everything even better. Also, I learned how to make a work skin to show the emojis properly.


I received three stories in two fandoms! The first one here was a late treat which was such a delightful suprise! All rare pairs, which is so awesome. I loved these all. ♥

burning with desire for a kiss by claudine
Mila Babicheva/Sara Crispino, Yuri!!! on Ice, 800 words, Explicit
Friends With Benefits, Canon Compliant, First Time, Slice of Life with Sex

But Not For Me by havisham
Christophe Giacometti/Victor Nikiforov, Yuri!!! on Ice, 2800 words, Explicit
Pre-Canon, Friends With Benefits, Angst and Porn, significant haircuts
Chris won gold, once.

Stuck With Me by Marks
Tezuka Kunimitsu & Inui Sadaharu, Prince of Tennis, 300 words, General Audiences
Inui sat down on the bench. He’d considered the odds and decided that Tezuka probably wouldn’t get up.

rambles

I'm in that stage with my WIP where it's not so much a WIP as a jumble of notes and despair. The problem with "just write X words per day" is that it doesn't really leave time for this part of the process: the ruminating and complaining and taking walks and creating the fucking outline, which, for character-driven stories, is so difficult for me.

Do you have a method for kick-starting that process? Just barf some words onto the page and see how that goes? Force a friend to listen to you ramble? Outline the emotional beats you need to hit and then fit the canon/made-up scenes around that? (That's not a bad idea, actually.) Procrastinate on social media?

In other news, I haven't been reading a lot of fic in YOI so far -- when I'm writing a lot in a fandom, especially when it's new, I tend not to read very much -- but I read almost everything in Choc Box (except some threesomes and a crossover) and it was great! So one of my goals is to do a bunch more reading, especially for rare pairs. But I may need to wait until this WIP is drafted to jump on that.

Another goal is to write something for YOI that's more plot-driven and light-hearted. YOI came along at a time when I was longing for a fandom with adult characters with sexual histories that I could write dirty porn about without having to age characters up first. (Not aging up for purity reasons; more wanting the characters to be sexually experienced.) And I have SO enjoyed that! But it's pretty far from my usual sports-series fare. (That said, the Idea Jar is far too full of stuff that makes me go, "Ooh, everyone is going to hate that but I'm going to write it anyhow.")

How do you pick which ideas to write (or draw or vid or ...)?

Fic: Off the Ice, YOI, Chris/Victor

I was trying to get this posted for Chris's birthday on Feb 14 but did not finish in time, alas! I've been thinking about this premise for quite a while and finally got on to it. Also, as I said on Twitter, my YOI fic seems to be 95% guys messily banging in hotel rooms and it’s making want to get a hazmat suit for my next biz trip.

Now to get my head into the game for the last Chris/Georgi instalment. If I disappear for a while, that's why. I write that pairing better when I'm basically just obsessing over it.

YOI and Word of God

A few things to keep in mind, about Yuri!!! on ICE and about any canon.

Word of God is not canon. What's on the screen or on the page is canon. Word of God is supplementary material that you are welcome to incorporate but you are not obliged to. We do not live in a universe where Greedo shot first!

Actions speak louder than words. People don't always say what they mean. They don't always know what they mean. When they try to explain their motivations after the fact, they may get them wrong or they may not be able to admit their true motivations. That applies whether you're taking a Doylist or Watsonion point of view.

Just because Kubo or Yuuri says, "hey, looking at these matching gold rings that canonically engaged couple JJ & Isabella are wearing makes me want to go buy a matching set of expensive gold wedding bands to wear on our wedding band fingers and exhange them with Victor on the steps of a church -- it will be just like that time my high school handicrafts club sewed matching bookmarks for everyone!" doesn't mean that was actually Yuuri's motivation, even if Yuuri tells himself it is. Or Kubo tells us it is.

People can't always articulate their feelings. One anime scene that strongly impressed me in years gone by was in Nana. Early on, Hachi and her boyfriend are away on a trip together. She asks him to tell her that he loves her. At first he says, "Don't ask a Japanese man to say that!" But he can tell she really wants to hear it, so he starts psyching himself up to it: I'm an American. My name is Michael. But he still can't say it and in the end, Hachi says it's okay, she heard him say it in her heart.

Obviously, not everyone will have that much trouble speaking about their feelings, but it's something to keep in mind.

Your interpretation is valid. I can interpret Yuuri and Victor's relationship in a lot of different ways and I really love that. You do you.

Personally, you will never convince me that Otabek is a DJ.

Fic: Blind Alley, ACCA, Nino/Jean

So, this happened after all. My reward for finishing my Choc Box fic and also for suffering through a cold the last few days. This is only the 9th story in this fandom on AO3 but at least it's not a rare pair!

Res Gestae

✔ Finished & uploaded Choc Box fic(s)

✔ Caught up on AO3 comments

✔ Avoided dropping all my YOI & tenipuri WIPs to write ACCA porn (believe me, this is an actual accomplishment, at least this week!)

✔ Started making notes on the next Chris/Georgi instalment; should be the end of the narrative arc and I'm going to be both sad and relieved to be done. I've had the ending in mind for a while but now I have to work out how to get them there. Also, do more canon review. Chris at the GPF really kills me, I feel so sad for him. And when Victor says he's returning to skating, I can't help but feel deeply sad for Georgi as well. *kicks Victor in the shin*

✔ Started thinking maybe my potential exchange commitments for February and March are a bit much! But I really want to do all of them, so I don't know. "Moderation in all things" is a lesson I've never been able to internalize.


Res Not So Gestae

𝙓 Did not catch up on LJ/DW comments, but soon, soon.

𝙓 Various life chores still undone, but that's chronic.

𝙓 Gave up on a Choc Box treat I hoped to write based on realizing I needed to get on with other WIPs.

𝙓 Did not get any back catalogue AO3 archiving done. To be honest, it's mostly that I don't want to spam people who have subbed to my updates with X-Files fic I wrote 18 years ago. If there's a way to add back-dated fic without triggering update emails, I would love to know what it is.


In other news, I hope you're all having/have had a great weekend!

January writing

Just did my check-in for [community profile] getyourwordsout: 16,039 words for the year to date, which is more than double what I need for my goal. (I'm trying to front-load my total to allow for slumps later on.) That's a lot of words for me, so I'm feeling pretty good!

One of my goals for writing this year is to be more wordy. That's a bit odd -- I think people are usually striving for the opposite -- but I generally have a fairly cut-down prose style that can be, well, inaccessible. A beta charitably told me it "requires close reading". I'm trying to "tell" a little more than I do now, at least most of the time.

I also feel like a lot of my work in the last six months has been fairly downbeat. Not sad, necessarily, but with a more sober mood. I'm trying to get back to a breezier mood and plottier stories for a while.

What are your current writing goals? Wordcount? Stylistic?

PSA

When working on fic for one sports series, do not watch an episode from another while on your break. Or you may end up saying, "Yuuri and Victor don't need any more help from me to be in love. These volleyball dorks, on the other hand..."

Kageyama grabbing Hinata's collar and saying 'Nice cover'

Still catching up with S3. This is from E06, which was so intense! Like I said on Twitter, I was shipping Tsukki/Kageyama up til the last moment, when the KageHina was so strong it became a black hole that sucked in every other pairing, including pairings from every other sports series. I just managed to save Inui/Kaidoh from crossing the event horizon but everything else was lost.

So, rings

We see matching rings three times in Yuri!!! on Ice, which I thought was cool.

First is during Georgi's Free Skate in episode 7, when he's thinking about Anya. There's a photo on her Instagram of matching rings with her new guy.

Fic: Closer, Yuri!!! On Ice, Yuuri/Victor

It's my birthday and I like to do things hobbit-style* so here's some fic for you. :)

I have many theories about when Victor and Yuuri started sleeping together. This is one of them.

Closer by Halrloprillalar
Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov, Yuri!!! on Ice, Rated Explicit, 1900 words
Developing Relationship, First Time Together

During their summer training, Victor makes Yuuri take a day off. And a night.

So, Otabek

I'd like to write some more substantial OtaYuri but I don't feel like I'm really getting Otabek. So here are my rambles; please feel free to add your own.

He's definitely quiet and seems introverted. He also has the resting bitch face. I love how dour his offical site image is. But that doesn't mean he's unhappy. Des his outer stoic appearance reflect a calm inner nature or is he roiling inside?

I'd like to think he has deep feelings that build up and build up until they finally explode.

His birthday is October 31. I'm not quite sure what to make of that. Obviously birthdays are somewhat significant: Chris is Feb 14. Victor is Dec 25 and Georgi (♥) Dec 26. To me, Oct 31 yells Halloween but that's a very North American POV. All Saints Day? Eve of Winter?

Yurio's birthday is March 1 and I'm not sure about that one either.

How about that motorcycle? Looks cool but how stupid can you be to ride around on a rented death machine right before a hugely important international competition? This feels like an episode of Grey's Anatomy waiting to happen.

That makes me think: he's still a young guy and he's also used to making his own decisions. I wonder if he also does it on purpose to look cool.

Based on their interaction, it seems like Otabek and JJ already know each other. We know Otabek did some training in Canada. This feels like one of those times where I might have to write some past Otabek/JJ first to sort him out before going on to Otabek/Yuri.

In conclusion, I am still unsure. How about you?

Fic x 2: Yuri!!! on Ice, Chris/Georgi & Otabek/Yuri

I sort of fell off of social media (except Twitter) while I was knocking down the draft of the Chris/Georgi! It's been a long longer than I thought since I last posted, probably because the story took a lot longer to write than I'd anticpated. (And turned out a lot longer.) Still one more story in the series to go. I'll be both relieved and sad when it's done. I've never written phone/Skype sex before -- it was an education!

And some OtaYuri WAFF I wrote for shiritori on LJ. I feel like the way into this pairing will be through Otabek so I want to try something more substantial from his POV. I feel like it will be tricky but rewarding to get into his head.

Fandom Snowflake: Day 7 & 8

Day 7: In your own space, create a fanwork.

I don't have a completed fanwork to post but since I spent all day yesterday working on a WIP (and that's on the docket for today too), I'm going to call this one complete.

From Twitter: ✍️ Weekend Goal: barf out the shitty first draft of my WIP no matter how much my personal life suffers.

Day 8: In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself.

Sure, let's go:

- I'm funny. In person and in my writing, when I mean to be. But now that I'm on the spot, I can't think of anything funny to say.

- I'm scary. I have what I call the "fuck-off field" which usually keeps people from randomly talking to me or sitting next to me if there's a seat free somewhere else. Since I'm also an introvert, that's just fine with me! (I have noticed it waning as I age so I'm trying to improve my resting murder-face this year.)

- I dance at my standing desk while I work. I currently have my own office, so that works out well. Usually it's happy dancing but I have noticed some angry dancing from time to time.

And that's enough self-aggrandizement for this morning!

Fandom Snowflake: Day 6

[community profile] snowflake_challenge Day 6: Create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

This is difficult for me because I am not an asker. And I'm definitely a must-do-everything-myself-er. (It was years before I was comfortable even asking my partner to make me a cup of tea.)

* Invitation from an artist to collaborate on a comic or doujinshi. (I can't imagine having the nerve to ask an artist this.)

* Concrit on my writing. It's not something I would ever offer unsolicited to anyone but would love to have so I can see where I need to improve. But it's a big time commitment to ask for and also makes me feel like I'm being, I don't know, presumptuous, maybe?

* Art of Mitsui from Slam Dunk as a hockey player -- in a hockey sweater, with proper hockey hair, and all his missing teeth showing. (Maybe with Kogure in the background as his manager!) I've been daydreaming this one for years!

* For people to feel free to make requests of me. :)

I also put up a Transformative Works statement on my AO3 profile and my LJ/DW sticky posts; should have done that ages ago.
